Useful Checklist

  Tips Home >> Travelling Tips >> Useful Checklist


 

MONTHS AHEAD
Plan your trip.
Start looking for special deals and other discounts for which      you may qualify.
Do some research on the area you’ll be visiting and on the      way you’ll be getting there. This is especially important to      start your research early if you are planning foreign travel.
Check the valid dates on your passport if you are planning on      leaving the country.
Take care of medical and dental checkups and vaccinations if      necessary.
After consulting your physician, consider starting an exercise      program to prepare your body for the extra exertion you’ll      experience while traveling.
Make reservations.
THREE WEEKS AHEAD
Watch the weather, so you’ll know what to expect and can      pack accordingly.
Check with your credit card company for available spending      amount; ask your bank for an increase if needed. Don’t      forget about the deposits that will be charged and leave      some room on the card for emergencies.
Check the valid dates on your credit card to make sure they      will remain valid while you’re traveling.
Notify the Credit Card Company that you’ll be traveling, so      they will expect charges from your destination.
Check your ATM and debit card for both daily and total limits.
Remember your PIN numbers or get new ones issued for all      your credit, debit, ATM and phone cards.
Purchase automatic light timers to switch on and off in the      evening.
Check your driver’s license to make sure it will remain valid      while you’re traveling.
Check cameras, purchase new batteries if necessary, and      film.
Make an arrangement with a neighbor, friend or relative to      check your home periodically.
If a friend or neighbor cannot collect your mail, make      arrangements for it to be held at the Post Office.
Arrange for lawn care or snow removal. Ignoring these areas      will make your house stand out in the neighborhood and      announce to everyone that you are gone.
Arrange for someone to start your car during very cold or      very hot weather.
Arrange boarding for your pets.
Start breaking in the shoes you’ll be taking with you on your      trip.
Add some yogurt to your diet to strengthen your digestive      system. This is especially important if your plans include      travel to foreign countries where you will be exposed to      elements that are hostile to your digestive system.
TWO WEEKS AHEAD
Reconfirm all your reservations.
Get traveler’s checks from the bank.
Make arrangements to purchase some foreign currency if you      are traveling abroad.
Check your insurance for expiration dates and coverage for      your automobile, home and the valuables that you’ll take with      you, as well as those you’ll leave at home.
If traveling by car, get the car checked and have the oil      changed. Don’t wait until the last minute, it may take time to      get an appointment and parts may need to be ordered. You      also want some time to drive around town and make sure      that whatever they fixed stays fixed.
Put your valuables and jewelry in a safety deposit box.
If you don’t have, or can’t get access to a safety deposit      box, you still want to hinder a hurried burglar by hiding      valuable items in your house.
ONE WEEK AHEAD
Reduce the amount of fresh items you buy at the grocery,      such as milk, fruit and other perishables you’ll need to throw      out before you leave.
Get out the suitcase and start your packing.
Be sure your luggage is marked with identification on the      inside and out.
Start adjusting your sleeping and eating habits closer to your      destination’s time zone to help avoid jetlag.
Make at least two lists of credit card numbers and travelers      check serial numbers.
Make several copies of your passport. Leave one list at home      and keep the other with you in case you lose your passport.      Do not keep the copies on your person, rather keep a copy in      your suitcase and/or give your traveling companion a copy.
Notify the local police and security system company to      immediately consider any alarms as real. Leave with them the      names of anyone responsible to watch over your house.
Check prescriptions for necessary refills; bring a list with the      drug’s generic name listed since the brand names available      can differ in other areas.
Pick up all your items from the dry cleaners.
ONE DAY BEFORE
Pay bills that will come due while you are away.
Walk around with your packed luggage to evaluate your      comfort with the weight of the luggage.
Move houseplants away from direct sunlight, water      thoroughly and wrap pots with plastic. Most plants can then      live without further watering for two weeks.
Empty the refrigerator of items that might spoil.
Cancel or hold your newspaper delivery.
Fill the car with gas before you pack the car. Check the fluid      levels and tire pressure, since your tire pressure will effect      the ride and gas mileage you get on your trip.
You might want to turn your refrigerator to its lowest      setting.
Set automatic light and radio timers. Check the bulbs to see      if they will last for your entire trip.
THINGS TO DO THE DAY YOU LEAVE
Turn water heater down to the lowest setting.
Turn your air conditioner up in summer. You want to reduce      your bills, but you may have to keep the house from getting      too hot to protect your pets and electronics.
Turn your heat down or off in spring or fall. Be sure to leave      the house warm enough in the winter. You may want to      reduce your bills, but you may need to keep the house from      getting too cold to protect your pets and water pipes.
Leave shades or drapes as you normally do.
     Plug a cheap radio into a timer so you can have some noise      in the house during part of the day.
     Lock all doors and windows including basement & garage.
Unplug electronic items, such as, your computer to protect      them if you have a storm while you’re gone. Remember to      unhook your phone line from the modem. Unfortunately, you      may have to leave it all hooked up if your computer is your      only answering machine. Make sure your surge protectors are      properly installed.
Pack the car inside the garage, with the door down, so      people driving by won’t find out you’re leaving.
Disconnect the garage door. Unplug it if you can, don’t pull      the fuse for the garage door until you verify the fuse isn’t      hooked up to something that needs to stay on, such as, your      refrigerator or maybe a freezer in the garage.
